There is so much to say about the current state of South Africa, and although I don't to post about the brutal reality of things happening on this side of the world, I also feel it is important to create awareness of the situation that we are facing. It is a cold hard reality that is greatly overlooked, and it is all blamed on apartheid...

Apartheid is blamed for the current economic state, I mean it cant possibly be a corrupt government that fuels hunger, poverty and joblessness.

Apartheid is blamed for the current genocides occurring, and land expropriations...I mean why take into account that the Zulu people murdered out the indigenous people of Africa long before white South Africans got involved.

Fuck apartheid is even blamed for the drought - because the white people didn't build big enough dams.

But the truth be told - even if any of the above were valid points,does that make everything that is happening now ok?

We are not talking about white farmers being murdered, we are talking about white farmers enduring hours of strenuous torture,brutality and rape before being slaughtered like animals - often hacked to death by mashettis or pangas.

And the best part is that the government fully denies any of this happening - this is the same government that publicly encourages the killing of all whites at every opportunity.

The majority of whites that were able to leave has left, however many of us are left with no such luck nor means to leave this beloved country that we call home.

The video below clearly shows some of these hateful protests that happens on a daily basis in the country.

I realize that it is never fun to watch videos such as these, and it is often frowned apon for people to share such drastic truths because of its upsetting nature, but the thing is, this is no longer just something that someone has shared, it is hitting very close to home. If it was simple murder one might still be able to understand, but the brutality of it goes way beyond anything one could ever expect from any well written horror movie.

A week or so, one of our close friends was tortured hen stabbed multiple times and left for dead. He was lucky, he survived. But he was not the first of my friends that has endured these attacks. two nights ago, a couple that I know was also attacked, the wife was lucky to survive, however her husband shared a different fate. A neighbor of ours was pointlessly tortured for over eight hours before being hacked to pieces with a mashetti. Another close friend of mine was tortured then raped by five men while her 6 year old granddaughter was hiding in the cupboard watching everything play out, later on she was thrown in the trunk of a car and tossed in the river - left for dead - she survived - still want to tell me that this is not hate fueled, and that South African farmers are safe - and still the world denies the fact that this is even happening, because the government is denying it - the same government people that is seen above publicly encouraging these attacks and killings...

I will leave it at that for now.
